Haunted Libraries, Talking Dogs, and Some Stink!

Help me give my students series chapter books to aid in their reading comprehension.

My Students

I am beyond thrilled to have a very inquisitive, energetic group of learners this year! They love hands-on activities, games and the use of technology in the classroom. Despite living in a low-income area, my students show up each day with such drive and determination.

My students deserve to have the best opportunities for success available to them.

I believe that with your help, we can continue to foster their love of learning, feed their ambition and help them to grow academically.

My Project

By donating to this project you are offering my students the opportunity to expand their reading across nonfiction and fiction genres.

Research has shown that students who are in classrooms with well-stocked libraries read more!

It is my goal to build a high-quality library this year to engage my students in reading.

By helping me build this library you are giving my students the opportunity to travel to far-away places, slay dragons, fall in love with characters who have similar experiences, or even save the world from aliens. They'll even learn about major historical events and how science has changed the world over time.
